Sister Gertrude Morgan ark painting

Sister Gertrude Morgan was a colorful minister, musician and artist who preached in New Orleans in the 1960s and 70s. She wore a Bride of Christ white outfit. Morgan died in 1980. The painting here, showing Noah's Ark resting on the Mountains of Ararat, has been in the same family for 28 years and was just consigned to Candler Arts. Note that Sister Gertrude is standing at the bow. The painting was part of a 1988 show of naive art at the Midwest Museum of American Art.
